These images were photographed by Launie Kettler. She lives in Northern Vermont. She shops at local organic grocery stores (Plentiful organic, buy local, grocery stores…i grew up with them in Vermont). Launie has a wonderful, well-lit apartment…the one downfall, to me, is the kitchen. Launie took the lack of space as a personal challenge. Her site is http://www.teenytinykitchen.com. If you love fresh food, visit for recipes. If you have a kitchen, the size of a broom closet…don’t give up cooking, she will show you how it’s done.
